Armm convenes scholars to address inequalities

COTABATO CITY – The Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (AR-MM) will convene on July 28 at Shariff Kabunsuan Cultural Complex here all the ARMM scholars as the region tries to address the remaining gaps and challenges on inequity in the delivery of basic socio-economic services, an regional official today said.

John Louie Balagot, ARMM deputy executive secretary, said the region has already established a flagship direct assistance program dubbed as ‘Empowering the Bangsamoro Region through Active Community Engagements in the ARMM’ (EMBRACE-ARMM).

Balagot, also program manager of EMBRACE-ARMM, stressed that Governor Mujiv Hataman has underscored the need to strengthen the ‘May K ka sa ARMM’ program, which was established in 2013, specifically to further improve the mechanisms and to optimize the achievement of its objectives of helping needy communities.

In June 2015, the Office of the Regional Governor created EMBRACE-ARMM through Executive Order No. 017. Pursuant to Section 7, Article II of Republic Act No. 9054, the regional government is mandated “to devote its resources to the improvement of the well-being of all its constituents, particularly the marginalized, deprived, disadvantaged, underprivileged, disabled and the elderly.”(PNA)
